Browsing the CHANEL counter for the new Rouge Coco Shine lipsticks, I was distracted by the new Summer collection. I mean, how could I not be.? The nail colours and bronzer (the lighter of the palettes, Bonze Rose) are mine, as I simply could not resist these new beauties.
Fresh flowers and summer gardens inspire the colour palette for the Summer 2011 Collection, LES FLEURS D’ÉTÉ DE CHANEL. Shimmering shades of pink for lips beautifully offset flushed and bronzed skin, while hues of delicate green and sunny yellow offer a refreshing, vibrant take on eyes and nails.
The collection includes:
SOLEIL TAN DE CHANEL - MOISTURIZING BRONZING POWDER - $50.00
Bronze Rosé for fair complexions and Bronze Corail for deeper or tanned complexions offer the perfect complement to sunkissed skin and enhance a natural glow.
- Bronze Rosé - Natural beige with rose highlights
- Bronze Corail - Deep beige with coral highlights
LÈVRES SCINTILLANTES - GLOSSIMER - $28.50
Lips shine, as if kissed by the morning dew, in summery shades of coral and rosy pink, perfectly flattering summer-bronzed skin.

I am going back for the Pensee Glossimer. It tested the beautiful gloss, and it is the summer shade I always try to acheive. It just so happened to be out of stock when I shopped, but it will be mine next time.
